IDRC funds research activities that are designed to directly benefit developing countries and their citizens. Our approach focuses on collaborative partnerships and projects proposed by research institutions and individuals.
To build a critical mass of knowledge in our priority areas, we fund individual research projects as well as larger research programs in collaboration with other donors.
We mainly support developing-country researchers. There are opportunities, however, for joint research projects between developing-country institutions and Canadian or international researchers and institutions. Our Canadian Partnerships program also supports research and related activities at Canadian institutions.
We also offer fellowships and awards to both Canadian and developing-country graduate students.
